In general, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves separate web hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous hosts of very powerful web servers. Each individual service set forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The big cloud hosting swindle. Quite widespread now.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is highly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no norms at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling organization. This is why the hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers

If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, multiple servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud hosting system at hand, since setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a problem, lots of money has to be spent too. Mountains of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you must develop one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the web hosting CP too.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on a single web server only. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and hosting CPs are installed.

The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to establish an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform perfectly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Good instances of in-house invented cloud web hosting solutions with in-house invented website hosting Control Panels besides us, at IT Home Systems, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision expenses

The smallest investment demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
